  1. Happy Birthday Snacko :)

  2. This is a great video with the author of X-Plane, Austin Meyer, explaining how OpenGL works and how much better/smarter Vulcan works with X-Plane by pre-loading everything and removing studders and increasing FPS by 30%++
  3. I made it out of Oak. Inspired by this model I saw in Fine scale Modeler of a Mig-21.
  4. I got playing with those skins last week and came up with this crazy steam-punk fictional skin for the Jug. I know it's not everyone's 'cup 'o tea' but it was fun making it. And I learned a ton about using GIMP Paths. Cheers! Snacko ? P-47D DDz.dds
  5. You might find this useful in understanding the Radar operation. It's for the F-15, but useful in understand radar in general.. https://tawdcs.org/radar-f15/
  6. Well, we(you all) have been through this process a few times in the past few years. It seems not to have brought in the new members or gotten people to show up in the past that you have wanted. I hesitate to post an opinion because I'm not a regular anymore. I mostly don't fly online anymore because I'm getting older(sleep/attention focus problems); and I'm doing other projects. But for me, my favorite part of flying online was flying actual simple missions. Something that was short and sweet and fun. Then, do it again, and again. The dogfight servers where everybody does whatever they want, I find boring. I can do that on my own.. ie:learning a DCS/Box plane. Once I can takeoff, nav, land and bomb/dogfight I would be ready to have fun online in a good mission. Or, if there was specific aircraft training, that I think is fun too. Touch and Gos, bombing range, all practicing a specific aircraft so we can fly that fun mission.. I will say that most of the successful online groups focus on 1 primary sim. Even in DCS that gives you ~30 complicated aircraft to fly? Even that is hard to get everyone to fly in a mission(ie. can't have a Spit on a mission with a F-18c). So, it's hard keep the old players and recruit new ones. So, I guess I agree with what Fen said in an above post. You need to pick 1-2 sims, state what day you fly them. Have regular "FUN" missions. That's my 2 cents.

    Somehow I feel disturbed by this..
  8. Was this guy an actual back seat jester? Seems like it would be better if he had the experience of that job to make it more realistic. He's laughing at points where he almost hits the ground. Where he should be saying shit, shit, shit! Oh well, we'll see what the end product is like. But there should definitely be some swearing. I think that will probably need to be a mod.

  10. Minty green tree colors can be caused my old shaders if you did an DCS update and not a clean/new install. Just delete the ...Users/xxx/Saved Games\DCS\fxo and ...Users/xxx/Saved Games\DCS\metashaders folders. The game will rebuild those shader folders for each Theater. So, then fly a quick mission in each theater and wait for it to load.. and wait... and wait.. Once they are built it will load faster. If you are getting 100-150 fps you can turn your graphic settings up much higher. Try to match your refresh rate of your monitor. My monitors are 60mhz.. So, I shoot for 60fps on average, and turn my graphics up until the fps are hitting around that range. Cheers!
  11. Hi Mate. I have just joined. How do I get the teamspeak password?

    Many thanks.
